This video is a screen capture of the Powerpoint presentation (the video from this presentation is posted separately) with the audio from the video synchronized with it. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on software to convert a Powerpoint presentation to video, so I used an open source screen capture piece of software, but could not get the video configured so that I could achieve an adequately small file size (hence the 778 M size). Apologies... I also couldn't get the video to center unfortunately. But this is the best I could do without having to spend money to do this since Archive.org doesn't permit upload of Powerpoint files with associated audio by themselves...
I don't know about you, but I left my high school history class with the impression that U.S. involvement in World War II, at least in part, had something to do with American concern to rescue the Jews. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Certainly, there were Americans who did care, and American involvement in World War II did bring an end to the atrocities with the end of the war, but as a matter of state and federal policy, and as a matter of historical American anti-Semitism, rescuing the Jews, of course, was not our immediate concern (some might argue accurately that it was not a concern at all).
On Monday 11/7/05, I had the honor of giving the opening talk for Holocaust Remembrance week. It was titled "American Complacency and the Holocaust" (a title chosen by Hillel) though my preferred title might have been, "The USA: Birthplace of Nazi Genocide." Essentially, in it, I explore American ideological culpability for the Holocaust vis-à-vis eugenics and scientific racism. I assert that Hitler looked towards America as the model for enacting his Aryan master race plan as a legal and practical real world example (in fact, the first and only example of its kind in the world) of how eugenics ideas might be applied through state and federal policy.
